-term debt ceiling extension. is it too short? does this get us past the hump? >> well, you know, look, this is an attempt by republicans to acknowledge that in a way president obama has won on the i won't negotiate. >> it's not ending the problem, but it is an acknowledgment by house republicans that having that fight right now is not one that is politically advantageous for them, and not advantageous for the country. it does not mean, however -- obviously, it does not mean that we may not have down the road in three months time, and now kind of mid to late spring, we may not have the fight we are expecting to have next month. >> only 44% disapproval rating for the president. that's a pretty good head of steam going in. real concerns about whether the president and congress can do mying about the economy, which is job one. >> the vast majority say it's in the wrong direction. there is a pessimism, is the best word i can use, about the deposit's willingness and i think even more worrisome ability to fix the problem. >> there is a decline in confidence. there is a broader trend, but it'
ceiling extension on the table. but if they don't take strong measures on the spending sequester and other budget cuts, they're going to be in danger of being out of office and losing the house in 2014. >>> now, president obama, many of our leaders never seem to talk about the real root causes for crime, economic failure and violence. i'm talking about the breakdown of families. talking about the absence of faith-based moral teachings in school. and the shrinking number of people even attending religious services. can we prevent future tragedies if we focus more on family values and faith? here now to help us with this, father george william rutler the church of our savior in new york. and the rabbi shmoley, author of "the broken american man and how to fix it." rabbi, let me begin with you. most of the mass murders and horrible events are committed by men or young boys. >> that is absolutely right. >> and i want to go there because that leads me to family breakup and that there are no fathers and there are no examples and there's no behavior. tell me what the effect of this family breakup
will pass a debt ceiling extension for the next several months, in exchange for something to happen in the senate. what they want to have happen in the senate is the senate to pass a budget. as you might know as well, the senate has not passed a budget in several years time. so that is what that, this is negotiating point. the house says they will go ahead and do this. they will extend our debt limit, our credit limit, if you will in exchange for seeing a budget passed in the senate. now it is worth noting as you might know, charles krauthamer comes out with an editorial every week in the "washington post" and he actually wrote about this idea today in his editorial saying almost exactly the same thing. i'm going to read this part to you. the more prudent course, he is talking about the debt ceiling debate, would be to find an offer that can not be refused of the short-term tradeoff utterly unasailable and straightforward. for example, charles krauthamer writes, say, extend the debt ceiling through may 1st. this is idea by charles krauthamer maybe it is in the works. jon: that is a
look at some of the discussion around the debt ceiling discussion, around the debt ceiling extension, and i share l everything w's view -- lew's view that, you know, this is really the height of irresponsibility that we're sitting here discussing whether the united states should default or not on its debt which is debt that has been incurred as a result of spending that has been approved by both bodies of congress and approved by the president of the united states. there are 535 members of congress. i assure you that not a single one of them if they were confronted with a credit card bill that they didn't like would simply say i'm not going to pay that because they know that the implications for their credit rating, the access to future bank loans would be affected for 10, 15, 20 years. and so it's kind of appalling that we're sitting here discussing whether we would do that with, you know, this country that we're all so incredibly proud of. so -- >> let me for my last question try to be a little bit prosock ty here -- provocative here. folks like alan blinder, very well respected ec
they, of course, prefer a long-term extension of the debt ceiling, not just three months. >> pelley: nancy, thanks. president obama is about to begin his second term and security for the inaugural ceremonies on monday will, of course, be extremely tight. uniform police will be everywhere, but we asked john miller to tell us about the security operations that you won't see. >> i, barack hussein obama do solemnly swear -- >> reporter: during president obama's first inauguration there was a threat taken so seriously that counterterrorism agents seemed to be everywhere in the crowd of two million. in east africa, people were taken into custody and given lie detector tests by the f.b.i. in tend, the tip turned out to be wrong but it gave a young administration on its very first day a picture of what can go on behind the scenes of a major event. for this inauguration, some of the security is meant to be obvious: the coast guard will shut down the potomac river, but some of the security is meant to be nearly invisible. at union station who two men who could have been waiting for a train we
, we'll give you a short-term extension of the debt ceiling for a certain amount of spending cuts, or we'll give you a long-term extension like you want for even more spending cuts. can they force entitlement reform around medicare, for instance, even some of the -- in their view -- more limited things that the president wants to do around means testing and age and indexing to try to attach that to a debt-limit deal. do they move beyond the debt limit, try to get to the continuing resolutions and those kinds of things? they recognize that this is the only area of leverage that they have, but they want to be careful about it. >> so chuck todd, how does the white house deal with that supposed leverage? >> well, first i think the republicans are hoping that they have a manti te'o defense, that somehow it was all a hoax and maybe the election was a hoax and they can go back and redo everything. no. i think the republican -- the white house strategy is make the house republicans try to do something. and i think that -- and my understanding what house republican leadership wants to do i
is drama. okay? so congress should do its job. we're not going to negotiate over extending the debt ceiling. >> though the house is planning something short-term to force the senate to the a budget. >> just the structure, moving something on a shorter term, what we are discussing is something that all could support. it's reasonable. but also very constructive for america themselves. >> spokesman for the senate majority leader harry reid says if the house pass a clean debt ceiling incress, the senate will be happy to consider it. jay carney at the white house called for passing a clean debt limit deal without delay. leading republicans are saying without a budget that includes a real plan to reduce the deficit, the nation faces the threat of a credit downgrade. bret? >> bret: mike, thank you. sticking with the tet and deficit issues, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are talking about what to do in a worse case scenario. the government not having enough money to pay its bills. chief political correspondent carl cameron reports on a possible short-term solution that is getting a long look

you, phil. david: house congressional leaders announcing today that they will vote on a debt ceiling bill next week that will include at least a short-term extension. liz: rich edson live at the house republican annual retreat which is in williamsburg virginia with the very latest. rich? rich: liz and david, a three month extension, that's what they are discussing. this is a result of three day meeting here, the republican retreat in williamsburg virginia. this is the bill that the house will vote on next week, a three month debt ceiling increase and debt ceiling increase is contingent on the house and senate passing a budget. the senate hasn't actually passed a budget in years. the bill also withholds congressional pay without congress passing a budget. the one problem with this for a number of republicans, there really are no other spending cuts in this. remember the boehner rule dubbed the boehner rule says any increase in the debt ceiling must correspond to equal amounts in spending cuts. >> not quite the same reaction from house minority leader nancy pelosi saying: >> so the rep
republican leadership, they came up with an olive branch, a three-month extension raising the debt ceiling without a whole lot of pr preconditions, a positive statement coming from jay carney saying that we are encouraged that there are signs that congressional republicans on holding our economy hostage to extract drastic cuts in medicare that middle class families depend on. it was positive from the white house. pretty negative response from nancy pelosi, the democratic leader in the house. this pros poll sas, she says, does not relieve the uncertainty faced by the middle class. this is a gimmick unworthy of the challenges we face and the national debate we should be having. the message for the american people is clear, no gauges, no default. is there a lack of coordination in the response between pelosi and the white house? >> look, i think both sides are true. it's positive that the republicans and the congress are backing off of that threat. it's also true that we can't go in three-month increments having a debate about whether we're going to pay our bills and whether we're going to je
says he's willing to debate spending cuts, but that the debt ceiling should not be a link to a budget battle. >> verizon says it has made significant progress in dealing with issues stemming from last summer's deadly derecho. this comes after the virginia state corporation commission said 911 outages were caused by the company's failure to perform necessary maintenance. the panel also said verizon failed to monitor and respond to the outages which disrupted 911 service to nearly 2 million people in northern virginia. what a mess that was. nice to sea there getting on top of it. >> for the next big snowstorm. >> we did not need to worry about that so much yesterday. >> we were not calling to rub it in. >> i would rather take about the sunny skies you are predicting now. >> it was not a major storm. everything stays to our south and east. you have to be prepared this time of year for anything. here's a look at the satellite and radar picture. look at that swirl on the bottom of the animation. that shows the tract of the low. this was in its early stages. look at how it pulled off to the
on extending the debt ceiling to april 15 next week. rich edson joining us in virginia were these headlines are crossing from. rich. rich: actually to go much longer than that, three-month extension. longer than april 15. republicans will vote on a bill that extends the debt ceiling for three months, this would be from the time february is supposed to run out between february and march treasury says three months beyond that, debt limit increase that would be contingent on the senate and house passing a budget. for years they have failed to pass a budget, and so the debt ceiling would not increase unless the senate and house passed a budget. also, the bill would include language that if congress does not pass the budget, members, greshamission members were not a paycheck. if not, congress does not get paid. thank you. cheryl: thank you very much. over to you for breaking news. dennis: dow jones report in the u.s. negotiate hostage swaps with terrace. cbs is reporting one american hostage is dead, four others have survived in the algeria crisis over there. cheryl: every 15 minutes, of course
intimating at this point that they're going to be some short-term extension in the debt ceiling and focus on spending. they seem -- you know, they seem to be a little bit hesitant to allow themselves to be set up again as people that are trying to destroy the economy. they're tired of being put in that position where they're holding back the economy. and i think it was the accusation in the first place, but they're sensitive to this point and they're going to roll over. >> they're very sensitive. the political realities of the situation is that i think we all know what needs to be done longer term. the reality is can they get any of this done in the next two months? and that's a much bigger question. i think they're trying to figure that out right now? >> well, we will have people that will argue that we don't have a spending problem, that president obama said we're going to have an economist on today on how you get -- you know, we're going to talk to him. he says the one thing that would hurt the economy is in cuts in social security or medicare or medicaid. any type of reform to those t
attention. and that debt ceiling crisis may be delayed until the spring. the house is reportedly getting set to vote on a three-month extension until next week and what that does is sets up a big fight on budget and spending cuts which could embroil the economy and stock market in a new round of uncertainty but it kicks that can down the road, so is that why stocks are a bit tempered today? we'll take a look at that. the dow right now up 12 points. we are flirting with those five and a half year highs, 13,610 and change would be that five and a half year high so we're just pleau that right now. the nasdaq down another eight points at the moment at 3127 and technology among the groups suffering today. the s&p, again, here we go again. any positive close for the standard & poor's 500 would be another five and a half year high for the s&p. let's take a closer look at the markets in today's closing bell exchange with our guests. andres, you and i were talking about the markets earlier. what do you think? getting ahead of ourselves with the rallies we've had so far this year. >> earnings matter,
, interesting development with this debt ceiling negotiations. you have got, mark, the republicans at their retreat coming out now saying that they want to have a temporary extension, the white house saying essentially this is that same kick the can move that we have seen from lawmakers in washington, d.c. so when you look at the numbers and how the republicans have an all-time low, the president is higher than he's been in his first term as far as approval. how do we jive that in again with this latest battle? we kind of see where the american people sides with likability and doesn't break the stalemates with house republicans. >> it doesn't but, tamron, i think today's development at the very short term is a significant break. president obama talking about breaking the quote/unquote fever of republicans and looking at what they have proposed is taking the battle away from the debt ceiling and moving it to having the senate duke it out over the budget process. of course, this means we will have another budget fiscal fight ahead but instead of it being over the debt ceiling, which
committee said this. house republicans may seek a quick, short-term extension of the government's debt limit. now let's go to the other house. let's read, and i'll read for you, what senator john cornyn said. he said, we will raise the debt ceiling. he doesn't say may. he says we will. of course he is in the senate. we're not going to default on our debt. both of these gentlemen are on the right track. i personally think in my emotional state i might not have wanted to increase the debt ceiling but i think politics of course we can't be naive. the president has a very big platform for his strategy. he has the bully pulpit. and i think that some media are calling this a retreat on the debt ceiling. to me the only retreat in the equation is williamsburg, virginia. but i do think that now we can concentrate on what andy brenner and i were talking about yesterday and that is march 1st the sequester. march 27th the continuing resolution because we haven't seen both houses pass a budget and i think these issues are much easier to extract from the democrats/the white house because the short-term bu
